May 24 - May 26

It is widely understood that the practice of accessibility is about more than following a checklist. Policymakers and web, document and media creators recognize that it is critical to understand the needs of users with disabilities, include them in the design process, and ensure they can access the final product.

Yet, as public and private organizations address long overdue issues of inclusion, equity and diversity (IDE), this raises new questions for people who work in the field of accessibility: How is accessibility understood through the lens of IDE? How is accessibility impacted by IDE issues? If disability is a single facet of a person’s identity, can we be accessible if we only address accessibility needs?

The Annual Accessibility Conference welcomes both accessibility novices and experts, and encourages attendees to build communities and exchange ideas.

Presenters share practical and theoretical knowledge of:

Web, document and multimedia accessibility and other AODA-related topics

  • Accessibility theory, policy and compliance
  • Disability research and accommodation
  • Inclusive design
  • Adaptive technology
  • Accessible teaching and learning
  • Leadership in the field of accessibility
  • National and international accessibility issues

We seek to ensure that our programming is relevant and valuable to all attendees, including those who work in post-secondary education, the public and private sectors, as well as the general public. There’s something for everyone!

We are committed to hosting an inclusive, high-quality and affordable event.
